She'd have her say

by Michael   Sep 18, 2018


some times she would mumble
some say it was jumble
but I would disagree
it made perfect
sense to me

swigging, her chardonnay
she’d sit on a bench on a
mid-summer day
never afraid to
have her say

no time for the games that people play

her opinions were said
always turning a head
but always had time for flowers in beds

her love was of nature, and all its creation
spoiled by warmongers annual convention
wasting money on murderous invention
use the damn money on hope and prevention
there is no sense of justification
people are forced into dark immigration
many lose families without hesitation
and some never helped with any suggestion
leaving them stranded at any old station
my heart just bleeds so much damn condemnation
for those who cause this worlds devastation

then waddle on home
in a world of her own.

    Michael, fellow poets left such wonderful comments. Completely agree with Mel that part of the poem looks like a rap.
    I always love your poems, you capture the exact emotions according to the theme that's the reason your poems touch our hearts.

    Wow, I love this Michael. She seems to be a free spirited woman...but the long stanza was a rap part right...hehe. Almost can imagine Eminem. :-)
